As i mentioned in my previous post eh0 did not get an ipaddress
because i left the cable out. If i plug the cable in then eh0 would
work perfectly. I guess i would not be able to tell wlan0 was not
working if the cable connection was working as i would get to the
outside world?

O.k., you are right but you should play the "pissed one" if somebody
tries to summarize/support known issues.

I'm not sure if you are using the SUSE box for writing these messages ...

No, i am using a Windows XP machine for these messages. I am fortunate
to have a couple of other machines knocking around! ;-)

Now we would need an information to the routing. Could you please post
the output of "route -n" ?

Here it is:

linux:/home/graham # route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
Iface U 0 0 0 wlan0 U 0 0 0 wlan0 U 0 0 0 lo UG 0 0 0 wlan0

The route table looks perfect ...

Next question: Is your router located within subnet, i.e. is
the router's IP address ?

You can get this information by connecting your notebook to the router
and restarting the network services. An "ifconfig" and/or "route -n"
might bring some light in the dark ...

Yes, my router is It currently has no encryption on the
wireless link and i have one normal computer, a Windows CE device and
my laptop able to connect to the internet via the wireless link. My
laptop is a duel booting machine between WinXP and SuSe 10.

Thanks for your help,
